Highcon and Xeikon continue collaboration at Graph Expo

At Graph Expo 14 (Chicago, September 28-October 1), Highcon will be continuing its collaboration with Xeikon to present the results of a completely digital workflow, from prepress through printing to digital finishing, on the Highcon Euclid. Following a successful first time appearance at the Xeikon Café in May of this year, Highcon will be digitally cutting and creasing folding carton packages printed on the Xeikon 3500 digital press.

Visitors to the show will be able to see the printing of folding carton boxes on the Xeikon booth (#841). These printed samples will then be finished on the Highcon booth (#1262) by the Highcon Euclid.

According to Eitan Varon, Executive VP, Highcon, “Xeikon and Highcon solutions focus on the importance of digital technology throughout the production process. We firmly believe that this collaboration will benefit printers who want to enter the packaging market and enable converters to cope with shorter runs. We welcome visitors to the show to see the fruits of our collaboration with Xeikon.”

Filip Weymans, Director of Marketing and Business Development, Labels and Packaging at Xeikon said, “Our Folding Carton Suite includes different components that are built around a Xeikon 3000 Series press to form turn-key solutions for producing short run folding carton jobs. Highcon is an important partner for our Folding Carton Suite as their equipment is unique in its ability to create digital creases. Visitors at Graph Expo will be impressed to see a full-fledged digital production solution for folding carton packages.”
